• {DIY} Washi Eggs + Easter Egg Centerpiece

    I’ve got another fun DIY for you today from Mariana from So Much Life.  She’s sharing a fun washi tape Easter egg project with us today with a bonus project of making your washi eggs into a cute table centerpiece.  The first project is perfect for those of you with little ones too – a no mess way to decorate eggs.  Enjoy!

    What you’ll need for both projects:  washi tape, hardboiled eggs, egg carton box, ribbon of choice, skewers, hot glue gun, acrylic paint & paint brush
    Project 1:
    Step 1: Paint the half egg carton box and let it dry.
    Step 2: While the paint dries, coat the eggs one by one with washi tape, and give it a patchwork look.
    Step 3: Arrange the eggs in the painted box.
    Project 2:
    Step 1: Place a dash of hot glue on the tip of the stick and carefully enter the egg. Pour more hot glue around the egg just to fix it (with polystyrene eggs, do not use hot glue, just insert the stick into the egg).
    Step 2: Coat the eggs with washi tape pieces until it is fully covered.
    Step 3: Tie a ribbon at the end of the egg (where the stick starts) and tie a little bow on it!

    Aren’t those so cute? I’m really loving the washi egg idea, and you could do it on plastic eggs or hardboiled (or even foam ones). If you do it on plastic eggs you could decorate each half seperately so you can still put goodies inside for the little ones.

    Here’s a little roundup of other ways I love to decorate eggs for Easter:

    What’s your favorite way to decorate eggs?  Charlie and I will be coloring them the old fashioned way, although this tip makes it much easier for little hands.  Happy decorating!

      what a brilliant idea – I LOVE WASHI TAPE. It’s awesome how it looks like patchwork on the eggs – so pretty.

    •  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.

       There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice! Head to my blog to enter (link in profile) and tell your friends  #OLDfavefinds #babywearing #mywildbird #giveaway #fredrickfamfallfun  Never did I ever expect to be so outnumbered by boys. I get asked so often if we're going to have one more baby so I can "try for a girl." It kind of feels like the person asking is insinuating that I'm missing out on something. While I always pictured myself as a mom of girls (or at least one) and had to mourn the idea I had in my mind of braiding hair and getting mother-daughter pedis, prom and wedding dress shopping, and ballet lessons, I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything getting to be the mom of my three sons. When someone says to me "wow, you have your hands full" or "you must be tired" I just smile. Because I am tired. And my hands are full. But so is my heart.  #tiredeyesfullhandscantlose #momofboys #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies #mommacharlieselfies #charlieandquincy And I'm hosting a @mywildbird sling giveaway on my blog tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that!
